Building Commissioner <br /> Stangeland, Orrin J. <br /> Docket 81-1: Text Amendment Concerning <br /> In-Home Day Care Centers <br /> The Plan Commission, acting as a Zoning Commission, conducted a <br /> Public Hearing on the petition of the Village of Elk Grove Village. <br /> The petitioners were requesting a Text Amendment to Article 5 of the <br /> Elk Grove Village Zoning Ordinance which would read as follows: <br /> Section 5.27: CONDITIONAL USES IN ALL RESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS <br /> A. In-Home Day Care Centers, provided that such <br /> centers are duly licensed with the State of <br /> Illinois and with the Village of Elk Grove <br /> Village. <br /> Trustee Nancy Vanderweel, Chairman of the Judiciary, Planning and <br /> Zoning Committee, and George Knickerbocker, Village Attorney, were <br /> present to represent the petitioners. <br /> Vanderweel began by explaining that an in-home day care center is <br /> presently not permitted in areas zoned for residential uses.

Vanderweel also remarked that local licensing would be <br /> necessary to ensure that the homes are sanitary and safe. <br /> Mullen asked what incentive an in-home day care operator would <br /> have to apply for a local license. Vanderweel responded that parents <br /> can be expected to ask the in-home day care operator for proof of a <br /> local license.

Vanderweel replied that the <br />
